Summary: I ordered this for a friend but been using it a lot while helping her out with maintenance. It is really a great tower for the price. The only drawback is it has only 2 USB connections in the back. Didn't know about it due to not showing up in specifications listing. Of course an hub solved the problem however clunky it appeared.
Summary: This review is for those looking to get away from WINDOWS 8 & back to something simple......I reviewed this product a while back but I must write a quick review for those looking to get a good computer for their older parents. My parents are in their 60s & recently purchased a Windows 8 computer (after owning an old Windows XP), they are completely lost.
Summary: The speaker/volume does not work. It also cuts you off when you are typing. I want Amazon to contact the seller to send me a replacement because it seems like I wasted my hard earned money on this product. It was a mistake that I even bought an Acer computer. I guess Acer is not a good product. I will not recommend this product to anyone.
Summary: My Wife's grandfather's computer was (finally) beyond saving and needed to be replaced. Working with my mother-in-law on pricing and desired features, we found this one and my grandfather (in-law?) absolutely loves it. I was a little nervous about the shift from XP to Win7 but it wasn't a big deal. He loves how fast the computer is. He is a very basic user doing email and photo viewing but it crushes those tasks.
Summary: First, I was expecting a full-size desktop tower but was pleasantly surprised to find this computer is less than half the size of the standard mini-tower and does fit nicely on a desk top. It is very nicely designed and performs flawlessly. Bottom line, I am quite satisfied with it.
Summary: This computers are being used in a computer lab at the school I volunteer at. For these kids, the computer upgrades (going from computers built in 2004) to these has been such a shock I'm not sure they would say a bad thing about them. These are built well, and very well. I had issues with set up, and for those complaining about the lack of usb connections, look at the price! You can always get a splitter that won't reduce functionality.
Summary: I chose this computer for an elderly client who uses it for email and internet... no heavy graphics, no streaming, etc. This computer works just fine for this user. If you are a gamer, do a lot of graphic manipulation, stream... I would suggest a more powerful unit.
